Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week

This is MS Awareness week

The NMSS has many events....but I particularly have fond memories of driving my scooter the entire 3 mile walk route....with a bunch of my family and friends walking beside me....during the MS Walks for many years.

We started going to the MS Walks  when my kids needed to take turns riding in my lap on my scooter...really young kids....20 years ago.  We really had Fun!

The National MS Society has been good to me...as I give a holler shout out about MS Awareness week.

I bet the kids miss riding in your lap during the MS Walks. Now they have to walk it..

Absolutely, Kim... Great organization... Have you ever blogged about your entire story--when you found out you had MS, your symptoms then, etc.???? I'd love to read it.

My friend, Reida, who has MS had a rough time getting diagnosed.. They were telling her that there was nothing wrong with her and that she was making all of her symptoms up... Gads!

Hugs,
Betsy

I was diagnosed during our MS Awareness Week many years ago. And yes, the MS Society does a fine job here as well. I now provide peer support to other people with the dread disease, an initiative which I wish had existed with my diagnosis.

I need to bust out my orange tee shirt! Those MS walks are incredible. I have done the 50K walk three times. Hard, but so worth it.

It's so good for us to have a week to learn more about this disease. I had a dear friend who had it and I so admired her determination to live life to the fullest. I hope this week is a blessing to you as well.
